Man of the House

It's no secret that Rajko has both Noah and I wrapped around his finger. He gets what he wants...when he wants it, with few exceptions. Though his words have been limited, he has always been great at grunting or leading me to what he wants, and I somehow have become quite amazing at reading his mind.

However, I feel like life is about to get a little easier. It seems like everyday, Rajko masters new words. Just now, he came and grabbed my hand and said, "please!!!"

He led me to the fridge. I opened it and he said, "Mama? Egg."

I got out a hard-boiled egg, took the shell off, and gave it to him. He responded with his typical, "thanks."

He took his egg over to the coffee table and began eating it. I also washed some grapes and brought them over to them. He saw the grapes and said, "uva." (Spanish for grape.)

After eating a few, he grabbed one in each hand, walked over to the couch and said, "up."

Now he's snuggling with Noah while we watch the Amazing Race. He checks in by saying or "Mama" or "Nani" (my other name) mixed in every few words between his jibberish. This is typical...he does it all day everyday. I love hearing that little boy check in with me over and over...making sure he has my attention and love while he plays and learns and grows.

I am excited for Rajko to be able to express what he wants, but I am so so sad that he continues to grow up so fast. Of course, when I say grow I mean in the intelligence and skills way, not the actual size way. He's still right around 20 lbs and I JUST pulled out the 12-18 month clothes...although they are still drowning him. Oh well. With him being so little, it still allows me to feel like I have a little baby.

We love our boy. :)

That is one sweet, smart little Rajko boy. (Or Rajko bean as Evan and I call him.) Several times when I am watching him I have thought he was saying words... I just don't have his momma's ear to know exactly what he is saying. Plus since he also speaks spanish I really don't know what he's saying! We're so glad our favorite Rashetas live so close by! We love it.

Rajko is definitely a little sweetheart! Even if his chat is jibberish, it is very conversational, and as you said, we are beginning to recognize words (with the exceptions of the Spanish ones for those of us who do not speak a 2nd language!). I have never seen a child sit for over 2 1/2 hours and be so good as he was at "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers." He's a good little one as well as especially handsome! We love our little Rajko living here so we can experience his growth!

We love Rajko more than is acceptable (Mia style) and he is sure a big talker! I know exactly what he is saying, usually has to do with a jeep and outside!

I love that he is starting to say more and more words, but I will actually be sad the day he stops "talking" in the way only Rajko does. His jibberish is way too cute. Just wait until they start using their word to boss you around, argue with you, or call you a "bonehead" (Elijah's new thing: "Mama, bonehead"). Oh well, sometimes it is sad to see your baby grow up, but it is always fun and exciting to see them grow into little people who can do so many things and have such different personalities.

Beware of being wrapped around his finger....before you know it will be 6am and he will be arguing about what pants to wear to school! I love that Rajko boy and his cute jibba jabba! 20lbs? Start feeding that kid!
